Botulinum Toxin

WRINKLE REDUCTION AND PREVENTION


We all want to look good for our age and keep people guessing!. It’s not about getting rid of every miniscule line. It’s about the prevention of those deeper lines that might bother you. Over time, your skin’s natural ability to protect itself reduces. Muscle contractions and movement leave their mark. Anti wrinkle injections are a quick, affordable and effective wrinkle treatment to help reduce and prevent wrinkle formation.

Whilst the face is in motion the lines that appear are known as dynamic wrinkles, however repeated movement over time forms deeper lines and folds known as static wrinkles.

Anti-wrinkle injections work to prevent the formation of static wrinkles by stopping the signal between the nerve and muscle.

The decreased movement in the muscle places less stress on the skin helping you maintain a fresh and youthful appearance by softening the existing lines and stopping them from getting deeper. Anti-wrinkle injections are made from a purified protein that temporarily causes facial muscles to relax, instantly softening lines and wrinkles and reducing the severity of visible wrinkles. Frown lines, which often make us look angry or anxious, can be softened so that you look more relaxed and serene. Softening of lines around the eyes with botulinum toxin can also help turn back time and give you a more fresh and youthful look. The effects of the treatment can last 4-5 months but this can be shorter or longer depending on the amount used and the area treated. Botulinum toxin can also be used to treat excessive sweating under the armpits, migraines, and teeth grinding. Larger does can even be used to slim down the jawline. There is minor discomfort during the treatment but most people report it to be tolerable enough.

The treatment takes about 30 minutes and recovery time is easy, infactmost clients find they can have it done in their lunch break, and resume normal social interactions within the hour.

Dermal Fillers

IT’S WHEN CONFIDENCE SPEAKS VOLUME


Look your best version of fresh. Dermal fillers are the non-surgical way to rejuvenate your face or lips (or both!) by adding volume and a big boost of hydration.

The treatment can be uncomfortable but there are some different numbing options such as anaesthetic numbing cream and ice. The dermal filler also contains anaesthetic medicine. Post-treatment there may be some redness and swelling. These will start to go down after the treatment, but may take a few days to fully subside. Bruising is always a risk so it is important not to plan any special occasions till at least 3 weeks after your appearance medicine treatment. Cannulas can be used to place deeper fillers without the risk of puncturing blood vessels.

Plasma Pens

Plasma pen is the world’s most advanced non-invasive, skin lifting, skin tightening and rejuvenation device used to treat wrinkles and sagging, dull skin. The plasma pen is FDA approved device used to perform fibroblast therapy, a technique used to stimulate production of collagen in the skin. The plasma pen significantly tightens, lifts, resurfaces, and regenerates practically any area of the skin.

How does it work?

The Plasma Pen delivers soft surgery plasma fibroblasting by converting electrical energy into gaseous diatomic molecular nitrogen that transmits the energized gas in a non-contact way to the skin’s surface. This causes a micro-trauma to the skin’s epidermal layer (top layer) whilst simultaneously heating and disrupting the deeper dermal structure via thermal conduction from above. This treatment is also know as fibroblasting. Fibroblasts are the most common cells of connective tissue in the body that produce collagen. Collagen continues to be produced for 3 months after treatment so some immediate results are seen but lines and tightening of the skin continue to improve for 3 months after treatment.

What areas of the body can be treated with plasma pen?

Fibroblasting produces excellent results for any area of the body, particularly the face and neck regions.

  • Accordion lines – the lines that form outside of the mouth when you smilie
  • Acne scars – improvement in the appearance of post-acne marks and scars
  • Crows feet around the eyes
  • Forehead lines
  • Jowl/jawline tightening
  • Marionette lines – The creases of folds that run vertically from the corners of the mouth down to the chin
  • Marionette lines – The creases of folds that run vertically from the corners of the mouth down to the chin
  • Nasolabial lines – The folds that run from the sides of your nose down to the edge of your mouth
  • Necklines/turkey neck
  • Smokers lines – those vertical wrinkles also known as lipstick lines around the mouth
  • Stretch marks
  • Upper and lower eyelids – bags and hoods
  • Skin tags

How long will it take to see results?

Plasma Pen skin tightening results are very impressive but should not be proposed as an alternative to surgery in cases of moderate to severe skin laxity. Only surgery can achieve these results. You will typically see immediate tightening along with cumulative improvements over the next three months in the appearance of saggy skin. In some cases it may require more than one session depending on the desired result. Results are long-lasting – usually around 2-3 years and can be permanent.

Is it painful?

Depending on the area being treated your session may last between 60-240 minutes. Topical anaesthetic is applied for 30 minutes prior to commencement. The treatment itself is mildly to moderately uncomfortable. Everyone’s pain levels are different and some areas of the body are more sensitive than others.

What downtime can I expect after my plasma pen treatment?

The downtime from the plasma pen is less than cosmetic surgery, however there is an average of 8 days downtime on the face and neck areas, and an average of 10-14 days on the body. The area is usually red and swollen for 3 days following the treatment. Swelling peaks at 3 days and then begins to subside. Scabs form and these typically begin to fall off on day 6 or 7.
